With some bands returning to action with streaming performances, perhaps it’s worth sharing?

Tomorrow, Thursday, May 21 at 7pm Arcturus will play “a very special live set with all the necessary props and a few surprises.” The show will stream for free on the band’s Facebook page.

Covid Lockdown performance veterans Clutch will perform a streamed concert titled Live From The Doom Saloon Volume 1 on Wednesday, May 27. They will be supported remotely by Crowbar, Blacktop Mojo, and Saul. This one costs $9, “tickets” available at https://livefrom.events/DoomSaloon/

Saw that about the Clutch show alright. Pity its on a Wednesday night our time though so won't be able to watch live.
I saw Devin Townsend did a series of shows from home for charity. One of the gigs raised $81,000 for the NHS!

It starts at 9pm, our time, will be over by midnight. EST is five hours behind BST, no? Perfect timing, I reckon.

BST Schedule

Saul 9:00-9:30pm
Blacktop Mojo 9:35-10:05pm
Crowbar 10:10-10:50pm
Clutch 10:55-11:45pm

You've got to love those virtual changeover times  :laugh:

This version of 'Bad Reputation' is pretty fucking rockin', to be fair...

Nunslaughter also did a show on Monday I think the video is up on the facebook page. Enslaved did one a few weeks ago as well I think they were one of the first metal bands to do it.

It's good to have this stuff for free but I can't be bothered paying to watch a band play live on my laptop. Maybe if it was a special set or something like say a Ministry show were they only play material from 88 - 92 that I would pay to see.

I'm largely unfamiliar with Arcturus but, in all honesty, these lads are fucking shite. I assume they're just having a stinker here?  :laugh:

This lad makes King Diamond look prolific when it comes to hitting notes.

Anvil will perform the first live virtual metal concert in Canada on July 4th at L'Anti Bar in Quebec City. Drummer Robb Reiner told The Metal Voice: " Nobody will be there, just cameras. We are going to smash Covid In Canada... make sure to join us and 'Rock That Shit'."

I hope some good bands do this kind of thing too.

I started doing some before the full lockdown started. I did 1 with Shardborne and 2 with a covers band I dabble in with my mates. Had a few audio issues on the Shardborne one so it kicks in properly about 20 mins in. First time doing it so we'd a few issues. Had most of the issues sorted after a couple of streams.

I've bought some gear to make doing this easier and more pro. Once the restrictions loosen up to where bands can safely be together I plan on doing a good few more.  Hoping to be able to offer it as a service and bring it to some proper live shows when this is all over.

It's crazy how quickly the bar was raised for bands doing it. In a matter of weeks the standard of quality has for the most part jumped up.

Anvil will win a medal for being the best band to accurately capture their live shows so  :laugh:
